The Albuquerque International Folk Dance Federation was formed to provide and promote international folk dancing and education in folk dance and folk culture. We sponsor weekly dances that include instruction as well. Each year, we host a weekend workshop in Albuquerque with nationally and internationally recognized experts.

You don’t have to join to come dance with us! Check out the “Dance Schedule” page for the planned teaching schedule and short descriptions of the dances.

COVID Restrictions: Up to 50 fully vaccinated individuals are permitted on the premises. Masks are optional.

AIFDF Presents

A Newcomer’s Class for 2023

Class will be held each Saturday

January 21 thru February 25


Cost $25/person

in the front room of
Lloyd Shaw Dance Center

Isn’t it time you got back into dancing?

If you’ve been away for a while, this class is the perfect way to get those dancing legs back. We’d love you to bring one of those new friends you’ve made doing whatever it is you’ve been doing on Saturdays that’s kept you away from us! Noralyn and Laura will be your teachers.

Newcomers Class fee includes music to some of our favorite accessible dances as well as covers joining the whole group at 8:15 in the big dance hall for additional practice and fun.

You must be vaccinated to participate and because of capacity limits, preference will be given to those who sign up for the full 6-week course.

We can’t wait to see you!

And Join us for a Special Dance Weekend
